Death of a Kingfisher | M. C. Beaton
3 posts | 5 read | 3 to read
From the author of the Agatha Raisin television series...DEATH OF A KINGFISHER: A Hamish Macbeth MysteryWhen Scotland is hit by the recession, Police Constable Hamish Macbeth notices that the Highland people are forced to come up with inventive ways to lure tourists to their sleepy towns. The quaint village of Braikie doesn't have much to offer, other than a place of rare beauty called Buchan's Wood, which was bequeathed to the town. The savvy local tourist director renames the woods "The Fairy Glen," and has brochures printed with a beautiful photograph of a kingfisher rising from a pond on the cover. It isn't long before coach tours begin to arrive. But just as the town's luck starts to turn, a kingfisher is found hanging from a branch in the woods with a noose around its neck. As a wave of vandalism threatens to ruin Braikie forever, the town turns to Hamish Macbeth. And when violence strikes again,the lawman's investigation quickly turns from animal cruelty to murder.

This book was absolutely brilliant!
From start to finish, it had me hooked! 😍
Very creative in the idea of the first murder of the kingfisher family and the intricacy of Mrs Colchesters murder! Amazing! 💯👌

I liked this book. Hamish is a fun character, the mystery was interesting, there‘s humor, and the narrator was decent.

I may not be able to make my swimming goal this week as the pool keeps getting closed because of thunderstorms.

I read all the Agatha Raisin books in order, but with the Hamish MacBeth series, I‘ve just picked up whichever one strikes my fancy. This is the one I‘m listening to now.

Clwojick I‘ve read one of her books, and I wasn‘t a huge fan... although I felt it had potential. Maybe I just chose a bad first pick? Do you have a favourite one to recommend? I‘d love to give her another chance. 💛💚💙 5mo

KathyWheeler @Clwojick I don‘t really have a favorite. I like to listen to them when I walk because they are light and fluffy and require little concentration. They‘ve also helped get me out of reading slumps before because of their lightness. 5mo
